Cutting Skills - Themed Lines

For children who need a little more "interest" on the page than our plainer Cutting Skills Simple Lines printables provide, these pages offer them something to cut towards! There are two types of worksheet here: one type with four straight lines for beginners, and a second type that starts with a straight line and then get slightly more difficult each time. A fun way to practice those scissor skills and perhaps tie in with your current Topic work, season or holiday, too.
